Looks great!
I think the saddles a little too far forward tho.
How've those wheels been treating you?

I love the wheels. They are extremely light and give a smooth ride. The braking performance is quite lacking though.

It rides really similarly to steel frames. It's absorbs road vibrations very well. It's a bit flexy, but I prefer that over stiff frames.

Thank you! Those were just some steel cages from a Cannondale CAAD9. They work really well.
